In 2003 the owner and innkeeper, Judy Barnett, bought this Southern Georgian style home, formerly the Allen’s Liberty House. After restoring the property, Judy opened Garden Manor Bed & Breakfast. The restoration included the creation of personal quarters so she could live on the premises as well as private living areas for the exclusive use of the bed and breakfast guests. Décor of the Inn is best described as Country Chic, blending yesterday’s charm with today’s technology! The inn has 9 foot ceilings, antique doors, original wood-paned windows, extensive molding, ivory painted walls, beautiful dark brown hard wood floors (oak downstairs and wide plank pine upstairs), & sweeping verandas. Yet guests have the modern convenience of free DSL connectivity, flat-screen TV and cable, walk-in room closet with mini-frig stocked with complimentary bottle spring water and favorite soft drinks, and a private bathroom with whirlpool or classic claw-foot tub, shower, garden-scented bath products, and towel warmer.
Garden Manor Bed and Breakfast, a smoke-free environment, provides several private areas for guests: a parlor, formal dining room, and 3 verandas with patio tables and seating. Guests may select from 4 guestrooms each with private bathrooms located upstairs: Classic Cottage, Country French, Colonial West Indies, and the English Rose Suite. Amenities include early morning upstairs coffee service, full-course plantation breakfast, and complimentary bottled spring water and guest favorite soft drinks in room mini-frig.
In November 2011, Garden Manor discontinued hosting weddings and added a first floor guestroom, The Carriage House. The Carriage House provides beautiful views of the back gardens and a very private stay. The Carriage House provides premium amenities such as a queen-size 4-poster bed, 42” plasma television with cable, individual cooling & heating unit, 2 pairs of French doors to access the gardens, and a large walk-in closet with built-ins as well as an oversize mini-frig stocked with complimentary drinks. Its bathroom is designed for comfort with a 2-person whirlpool tub/shower, tumbled marble counters, and a built-in vanity with seating. Dining is very special with breakfast served on a private garden patio (weather permitting) or in the Carriage House.
